Easter Nests


Children love helping out with this quick and easy Easter recipe.

They also love eating the ingredients as you go.

My tip is to ensure you have plenty of extra ingredients to hand for your little helpers to feast on as they ‘help’!

This recipe makes approximately 30 nests.



15 Shredded Wheat

600g cooking chocolate

8tbsp Golden Syrup

100g butter

Mini eggs to decorate

Melt chocolate and butter in a bain-marie over a medium-low heat.

Once melted stir in the golden syrup. Immediately pour the melted mixture over the Shredded Wheat and mix thoroughly.


Spoon mixture into cases quickly before the chocolate begins to set.
